First, I think to myself about the apparent whiteness of the Tea Party movement in question.
I am quite sure there are many other-than-whites within the movement and that coverage of the movement is largely deliberately selective. There are, of course, a shockingly large amount of "colored people" in the Tea Party movement. One need only search YouTube for a minute or two for the shock to wear off. The fact yet remains that the public gatherings are comprised obviously of a large majority of white people.
Of course, if this were a Kenyan tea party movement, the National Association for the Advancement of Noncolored People (the fictional race advocacy group headquartered in Nairobi) might make a proclamation which brings into question the seeming racist nature of such a movement. Why else would the Kenyan tea part movement be so unilaterally dark-skinned if they were not racist? I might point out that 75% of the US population is other-than-hispanic white/caucasian, but that would be racist, so I won't. Further, among the 12% of us who are "colored," 90% of them tend to vote for Democrats and DNC agenda, which always stand against and mock the platform of liberty upon which the Tea Party movement (the real one in America) stands.
So, of course they are seemingly few and far between, but it's not because they are being systematically liquidated, I promise. That would be the Progressives' bailiwick. (And, boy, did it realy take off in another national socialist movement across the pond!)
Further illustrating the point is a question we have been asking for a decade now: If Islam is fundamentally a peaceful religion, why do we not see more a defense of this claim from the mainstream Muslim laity? Can it be that the answer to that question is similar to that when asked why there are so few "colored" people at Tea Party assemblies?
And now, a bit of therapeutic nit-picking on my part...
"We felt the time had come to stand up and say, 'It's time for the tea party to be responsible members of this democracy and make sure they don't tolerate bigots or bigotry among their members,'" NAACP President Ben Jealous said ahead of the debate. "We don't have a problem with the tea party's existence. We have an issue with their acceptance and welcoming of white supremacists into their organizations," he said.
Really? To which deocracy do you refer? We are not yet a democracy, Mr. Jealous.
If there are there Black Panthers in your own party that you similarly appear to tolerate, you'll let me know and remedy the situation, I'm sure.
Lastly, to say that you have an issue with the tea party's "acceptance and welcoming of white supremacists" is to say that I don't approve of tigersharks because they smoke weed all the time. That would be propaganda built upon a lie. You really should know better, Mr. Jealous.
